Jockey Bo Radell White

James "Bo" Radell White was born on December 14, 1962, and passed on July 1, 2016.

Bo spent the majority of his life doing what he loved most, anything with horses. He was a successful rodeo star in high school and became a jockey that rode in many winning races all over the country starting at a very young age.

During his career, he rode 765 winners from 6,437 starts, with more than $3.1 million in purses. Among the horses he rode to stakes victories are Gilda Ryon in the 1986 West Texas Futurity (G2), Do Ya Disco in the 1994 Trinity Meadows Futurity (G3), Here Comes The Band in the 1989 Juvenile Invitational Handicap (G3) and Heles Dream in the 1990 Manor Downs Derby (G3).

Bo is survived by many loving family and friends including his mom, Oleta, of Grapevine; dad, Dwain (Nonie), of Weimar; brother, Virgil "Joe", of South Texas; sister, Rebecca "Carla", of Greenville; nieces: Jo Ann (Jason), Jo Lene, and Cassie (Trent); and many great nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
